MLB The Show 24 Buying Guide - How To Start Playing This Weekend

MLB The Show 24 officially releases on March 19 for PS5, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, but early access is available now with select editions.


MLB The Show 24 is now available for those who purchase the MVP, Digital Deluxe, or Negro-Leagues edition. Early access started today, March 15, four days ahead of the March 19 launch of the standard edition. The pricier editions also come with a bunch of bonus in-game content for Diamond Dynasty. And in the case of the Negro-Leagues collector's edition, you also get a cool steelbook case and limited-edition New Era flat brim hat. If you don't want to spend the extra cash for early access and bonus content, there's still time to preorder a copy of the standard edition for $60 or $70, depending on your platform of choice. MLB The Show 24 is available on PlayStation and Xbox platforms as well as Nintendo Switch.

It's also worth noting that while MLB The Show 24 won't hit Xbox Game Pass until March 19, subscribers who want to play early can purchase the Digital Deluxe Add-On Bundle for $40. This bundle lets you play early and comes with all of the bonus content found in the Digital Deluxe and Negro-Leagues editions.
